Empowerment & Responsibility

What's My Actual Impact? 

Many shark fishermen in Indonesia depend on extremely volatile and dangerous income streams to provide for their families and loved ones. Today fishermen are forced to travel further and in some cases in illegal water to seek more prosperous grounds, this new threat of prosecution can be combated. By joining The Crew you will be assisting in the investment and acquisition of new 'sustainable income assets' such as; tourism, waste management programs, early learning to better equip the next generation for changing times and finally supporting the community during this transition by suppling food, clean water and any other financial burdens and malnourished necessities incurred from a history of volatile fishing and marine exploitation.

JOIN THE CREW - (WHAT SIDE OF HISTORY WILL YOU BE ON?)

Many shark fishermen in Indonesia depend on extremely volatile and dangerous income streams to provide for their families and loved ones. Today fishermen are forced to travel further and in some cases in illegal water to seek more prosperous grounds, this new threat of prosecution can be combated. By joining The Crew you will be assisting in the investment and acquisition of new 'sustainable income assets' such as; tourism, waste management programs, early learning to better equip the next generation for changing times and finally supporting the community during this transition by suppling food, clean water and any other financial burdens and malnourished necessities incurred from a history of volatile fishing and marine exploitation. 

WHAT ARE WE INVESTING IN? (YOUR IMPACT)

1) A sustainable tourism program, that allows local fishermen to acquire and re-purpose their assets (boats, crew, knowledge, rich biodiversity) to build new independent income streams.  

2) Currently locals have no waste initiative or infrastructure in place, resulting in (HIGH) threats of disease and sickness. Our Crew are investing in waste management programs that employ Xfishermen to collect, recycle and transport waste opposed to entering and being dumped in our oceans. We are also building the first 'toilet block' on the island.

3) Early learning; our crew are investing in a new preschool re-build and learning equipment and curriculums to better prepare future generation for change.

4) During Covid-19 transition has been difficult, by supporting, your allocation of funds will also go toward basic supplies like food (rice, noodles) that are deposited monthly to our community.

      Love this pack!

      Not only is this dive pack gorgeous (I have the white one), but it's super practical too. I couldn't wait to get it, it arrived today, and I can't wait to put it to use. I especially love the snorkel holder on the side. It's roomy inside - plenty of room for a wetsuit. The pockets are nice too. Shoulder straps are super comfy and there is a padded but rigid backplate too so that it is easy and comfortable to carry. Great pack! 10/10 would recommend!

      Perfect for leaving on the beach / boat and keeping stuff dry!

      This pack has worked great for me! It keeps my towel and clothes dry while I'm out in the water or on a boat. Also keeps my wet clothes from leaking through the bottom of the bag when I'm walking back to my car or to grab a coffee.

      Your next dive bag

      Or your next bag in general. With a sturdy design and well thought out features, the dive pack is basically a must have. I fit my dive belt with weights, wet wetsuit, mask, snorkel, and other dive accessories in here easily. Huge bonus points, the white one is essentially sun proof. I took this on a 12 hour boat trip, albeit kept the bag partially in the shade, and it kept my water cool! I then left the bag in direct sunlight on concrete during a dive and came back 4 hours later to my water still chill and all my belongings not melted. (It was easily 90F / 30C outside with zero shade) Don't think twice about the bag, it's well worth it and a needed part of my gear. Do have an answer prepared for when people inquire about it because it sticks out and is an excellent opportunity to hype up Project Hiu.
